The Indira point
Indira Point Light house (2007)

Indira Point representing the southernmost tip of land in the territory of India is situated in Great Nicobar. The famous lighthouse was established in the year 1972 and was an important landmark for the ships coming from Malacca. This lighthouse station was then known as Parsons Point and then subsequetly Pygmalion Point. The pygmalion point had been renamed in honour of Mrs. Indira Gandhi after her visit to this place. The lighthouse was unfortunately inundated with water during tsunami 2004 and now appears as if standing alone inside the sea.


A 660 metres breakwater (artificial) was constructed by Andaman harbour works at Campbell bay.  

Other breakwaters at Andaman-Nicobar:
Hutbay -1.2 kms
Rangat -475 m
